One of the naysaying arguments we’ve heard of late is that health care in the UK is terrible compared to Canada (then there is us who have not had a family doctor going on five years now…)
I have some evidence to the contrary, besides the “anecdotal” evidence of so many people telling us differently. Click the image below to get the whole article. It is comforting to me to know that in the UK we WILL have a family doctor… IMAGINE!!!
This was put together to determine the quality & cost of the US health system, so there was no prejudice towards the UK or any other European country… it just reflects the facts. Now, there is the 10th ranking in the “Health Outcomes” sections, and I’m not entirely sure how that fits with the rest of the numbers, but it *might* (now I”m not sure, remember) be because there is a more again population overseas, or a mindset against medical assistance? Maybe all those war babies growin’ up with the idea of keep calm and carry on? I know that there is a good push here in North America to take the meds you are prescribed (like insulin or HBP pills), so maybe that’s the difference? I have no idea, since we don’t live there yet.
Maybe it’s the steak and kidney pie? *ducking before Hunny smacks me LOL!*
Nah.. must be the fish’n’chips’n’mushy peas….
All I know is, it can’t be the tea. LOL!
In any case, it still leaves them in first place, so that’s still something. I can’t wait to have my very own doctor to bring the Littles to when they need a check-up… they haven’t had one of those in over 5 years! I think they’re still operational, but they could probably do with a tune-up. 😉
